I dare not to get goosbumps watching the brilliantly edited first five minutes of Mark Neale's latest insanely great Moto GP documentary, FASTEST.

Neale has made the seminal Faster in 2003, The Doctor, the Tornado and the Kentucky Kid in 2006 and Charge, about electric bike racing.

Fastest is a movie I can best summarize like this: if you are involved with or have any interest in any form of competition, you need to own a copy. You'll understand once you watch, trust me on this one, there are unexpectedly profound life lessons to be learned.

A chronicle of the 2009 and 2010 MotoGP seasons, focusing on the rivalry between Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, it rivals Senna in power and craftsmanship. But MotoGP offers so much more drama than F1, certainly Rossi is a much more engaging character than anyone on the current four wheel lineup. You might come away from watching Fastest wondering why you spend time watching any F1.

There is a chilling moment in the movie when Marco Simoncelli describes his fall at the 2010 Malaysian GP, a year before his fatal crash at the same track. Stunning in retrospect, check it out after the jump.

Holidays coming up, get copies of "Fastest" for your friends and yourself HERE! . It's an Axis must have.


  1. This is how the FIA summaries should be done: with bits of live broadcasts. Fire the guy that has to pretend he's surprised! Using the different broadcasts at the same time is a great idea too.

  2. Just watched it yesterday, really really great, like you guys were saying.

    I love the more behind the scenes look and such. Seeing Simoncelli made me tear up a little, though... So much potential and excitement. But, he died doing what he loved. More than sex, apparently :P!

    Now, on November 28th, TT3D: Closer to the Edge gets released, that's another immensely great video/movie you guys absolutely HAVE to watch.

  3. AC,

    I've linked this page onto every Forum, Sent it to every email address I know, Posted it as my Status.

    I am not really a fan of MotoGP. I have never been a Fan of the Doctor, nor have I followed Jorge Lorenzo.

    But after watching the 5 minutes, I was nearly cheering at the computer. Thank you.

  4. @jacob. I the thing about the Simoncelli clip is that he describes the dynamic of his fatal accident, on the same track a year later!

    @righty. Thank you, get a hold of the movie, it's absolutely worth the price.

  5. I found it a bit of a Rossi love-in to be honest and I'm a massive fan.

    I've been reliably informed that after 'Faster,' 'Faster and Faster' and 'Fastest,' they're currently recording the final chapter which will be called 'Frameless and bloody pissed off.'

  6. That's like saying Senna was a bit of a Senna love-in... :)

  7. Wow, watching this kind of raced, is really amazing! Fast and Furious racing ever!
